Mating systems and interfertility of swamp milkweed (Asclepias incarnata ssp. incarnata and ssp. pulchra)
Author(s): C. T. Ivey, S. R. Lipow and R. Wyatt
Article Topic(s): Pollination,Seed increase
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Asclepias incarnata (Swamp milkweed),
AbstractResearches the breeding system of Asclepias incarnata. Variation in self- and cross-fertility was observed in the two subspecies and the hybrids between them. Although natural populations were largely outcrossed, the authors conclude that this species is neither fully self-compatible nor self-incompatible.
